Markus Haase Sculpts Wood, Marble, and Light—and Makes a Bang at Collective
Markus Haase’s Single Wrapped Sconce is the latest work in the artist’s exploration of natural forms combined with cutting-edge lighting technology. This unique mounted sculpture features a carved asymmetric design as the wood effortlessly wraps and folds across the central marble spear. As with his earlier work, Venus Wall Applique the contrast of material and form give the Single Wrapped Sconce both masculine and feminine elements.
As Haase works on a commission basis, a bespoke version may be made to order with custom dimensionality and materials.

Markus Haase restores the age-old, intricate stonework of Europe’s most revered cathedrals. To his sculptures and furniture, he brings the same mastery and attention to detail employed in his conservation projects. In his breakout series of furniture, Haase seamlessly combines stone and wood in fluid compositions that serve functional ends. Inspired by natural forms found in exotic plant life, Haase’s table legs are intertwined like rainforest vines, and his sconces glow with the dappled light of a forest floor on a sunny day.
